Overview


Part high-adventure tale, part autobiography, this page-turner recounts the eerie experiences that convinced brothers Brad and Barry Klinge, founders of Everyday Paranormal and stars of the TV series Ghost Lab on Discovery Channel, that ghosts really do walk among us Brad and Barry Klinge have been investigating paranormal occurrences for the last twenty years, and in Chasing Ghosts, Texas Style, they divulge some of their most exciting ghost encounters and analyze the science behind their paranormal hunts.

Each chapter of this fascinating book focuses on the Klinge brothers’ investigations into the creepiest of places, and explains how they have been able to capture both audio and video of paranormal occurrences using their high tech tools, and a healthy dose of common sense. Even when faced with mysterious slamming doors and haunting pleas for help, these brothers never shy away from a bone-chilling encounter or another chance to investigate a centuries-old haunting.

Whether they are simply looking for a frightening ghost story or are more interested in the science behind ghost hunting, readers will not be able to put this gripping book down. In fact, they may even be inspired to take up ghosthunting themselves.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In this enjoyable read, sure to entertain even skeptics, the Klinge brothers (founders of Everyday Paranormal and stars of the popular Discovery Channel show Ghost Lab) recount how they first became interested in ghosts, what led them to start their company, and why they decided to make scientific experimentation the hallmark of their practice. "Rule-breakers" in the ghost-hunting industry, the Klinges refuse to follow conventions, such as speaking only in hushed tones or speculating about whom or what the spirit is or wants, or taking reports of hauntings at face value. Instead, they utilize tools including digital audio recorders, video recorders, and electromagnetic pulse readers to determine if hauntings are really taking place, and focus on the resulting quantifiable scientific measurements. Readers unfamiliar with Ghost Lab will be impressed by this no-nonsense approach. However, despite pointed and funny prose, the ghost hunting stories become repetitive. That said, the Klinges bravely highlight their failures (like the time a "psychic" they worked with faked evidence), and maintain their own healthy skepticism even as they continue to profess the existence of ghosts.

"In this enjoyable read, sure to entertain even skeptics, the Klinge brothers (founders of Everyday Paranormal and stars of the popular Discovery Channel show Ghost Lab) recount how they first became interested in ghosts, what led them to start their company, and why they decided to make scientific experimentation the hallmark of their practice."—Publishers Weekly

"When I think of Texas, I think of great food, the Alamo, and the Klinge brothers. Barry and Brad have built a solid reputation within the field of paranormal research. After experiencing their own ghostly phenomena as children, it was only natural that they indulged their interests and eventually formed an investigative group named Everyday Paranormal. Together they leave no stone unturned nor do they shy away from controversy in their pursuit of the unknown. Using science applied to the realm of possibilities, the Klinges have repeatedly shown that it is indeed plausible to contact unseen worlds. While exploring both long abandoned buildings, as well as places where the public still gather, the brothers seek to prove that the unseen may in fact be discovered in the most surprising locations. Chasing Ghosts, Texas Style is a fun, informative narrative of how any of us can find adventure our everyday lives."

—Rev. Tim Shaw, author of The Ghosts of Buffalo: Spirits, Murder, and Mayhem in the Nickel City

Library Journal
From their schoolboy days to their website and investigation team (Everyday Paranormal) to their short-lived TV series (Ghost Lab), Texas brothers Brad and Barry Klinge have shared a lifelong fascination with ghosts. After recounting their biographical information and their path to becoming paranormal investigators, they devote the rest of their book to their investigations, including at Alcatraz and the Myrtles Plantation in Louisiana. The chapters, one per investigation, begin with information on the location and then describe the investigation and the wrap-up. The brothers take a scientific approach, relying on a variety of equipment and discounting anything, even personal experiences, that can't be corroborated by evidence. The book ends with a checklist of equipment, a glossary, and a bibliography consisting mainly of websites. VERDICT The investigations and the evidence the brothers collect are often creepy and compelling. However, the book is weighed down by its odd narrative style (the brothers take turns narrating, in sections labeled with their names), long technical explanations, and frequent promotion for their now apparently canceled program, Ghost Lab. Still, teens and young adults with a passion for the paranormal might find this of interest. The brothers' references to YouTube, frequent swearing, and devotion to all things technical should resonate with younger readers.—Susan Flaherty, Portland P.L., ME
